“Started off as clone pc builder and Novell Netware and SCO Unixware server admin. I joined Open Line Consultancy in 2004 and became EMC Storage specialist. I worked with a variety of storage systems including EMC Clariion, VNX, DMX and VMAX as well as HDS AMS series and USP-V. I mainly deal with Brocade and Cisco SAN equipment. I love digging into performance related issues. I hold an unknown number of EMC certifications, I’m a member of the EMC eServices Customer Council and I’m one of the 10 EMC Elect founders (Elect ’13 and ’14).
I’m married to Anna and we have a daughter called Elisa. We live in what we like to call the most beautiful part of the Netherlands, only 10 minutes from Germany and Belgium. We’ve been doing a lot of home improvement in the last few years and we’ll probably keep on doing that for quite a number of years to come.”
